Simply an unbelievable finish here at Nationals Park today. The Nationals won 6-5, beating the Mets and closer Francisco Rodriguez in a fashion I'm not even sure they'd believe.
After Cristian Guzman's leadoff walk in the ninth, Nyjer Morgan moved him over with a fielder's choice. Willie Harris singled to right, and Ryan Zimmerman walked.
That loaded the bases for Adam Dunn, who launched a fly ball to center field. From there, chaos broke loose.
The ball hit the top of the fence, just above Angel Pagan's leaping grab, and bounced back into play. Harris nearly passed Guzman around third base, and both crossed the plate just before the Mets' relay home, with Harris sliding in safely to tie the game.
A brief replay confirmed Dunn's ball was a double, and the Nationals intentionally walked Josh Willingham.
On the first pitch he saw from Francisco Rodriguez, Ivan Rodriguez punched a single to right, giving the Nationals a 6-5 win and ensuring them at least a split with the Mets.
Kristen Hudak and I will have plenty more later from downstairs.
